  1. To be honest that was my thought before posting this. Guess I just needed to confirm my thinking. Thanks ! Chris
  2. As I think about possibly a new putter one question that keeps popping up in my head is about the face. I see so many groove patterns out there along with smooth faces. Is there really a difference between each? Smooth vs groove? Chris
  3. Thanks for the write up and the info. I myself have been tossing about the idea of a fitter for my putter and your post puts me one step closer to giving it a go. It sure has me thinking. Thanks.. CHris
  4. For me the putter is the last piece of the puzzle. I have 7 putters, I tinker with all of them thru the winter hoping that one of them will "be the one", haven't found it yet, which is why I keep searching and buying putters. But I got agree with the OP, it sure is fun to get a new putter and finding out what it can do!!!
  5. I've been using mine for a couple of years now, works great. I have 3 acres for a yard and will sometimes put it on it's back laying down and chip and pitch into it. Great short game pratice. Chris
  6. Wanted to let everyone know in the Centralish part of Michigan, there are 2 new sim locations that I found recently. One is in Gladwin Michigan, a Trackman set up located at the Riverwalk Place. The second is Pinconning Mi, located on 11 mile between Pinconning road and Estey road, The old elementary school building called "Golf 101" . Not sure which one that one is, but it's a good one. If you need more info send me a message. Chris
  7. My question is hotel adjustments. Lower COG has N,S,D and +1. Upper COG has N,-1,D and +2. I'm unable to line up the N's on both cogs. So I want the stated loft with a neutral setting. How do I set the cogs for this?
  8. I just got plain tired of always coming up short, so I got "real" about my distance with the clubs, ego set aside (not easy). Also accepted my age as a factor. And came to the realization that the number on the bottom doesn't matter, getting close to the hole does. So when in doubt I club up to be sure. I can say that this season I'm doing much better at getting hole high, sometimes long which is better for my game in the long run. Chris
  9. I've actually been researching this for some time now. Please add me to the sign up list !! Chris
  10. I'd say your in a good spot with your game. Not many can say that. I would say I'm pretty much in the same spot, I practice a bit of chipping and pitching in my yard and some putting at the course, but thats the extent of it. I know where my short comings are and the only way to remedy that would be more time on the course. Neither my wife or my body would allow. I truly enjoy being out on the course, I never keep score so my handicap is a guess at best ( when I do play with others I'm usually in the low 40's). For me it's all about the fresh air, exercise and the course and how she's feeling on that day. I think shes calling me now.... Chris
  11. I'd have to agree with Tat2Golf on this. Once I was able to leave the "driver" idea behind and look at the course in a logical mind my score dropped. I still have situations like Tat2Golf where the guys I'm playing with are heading to the tee with drivers and I have a 5 iron. After all the drives I'm the only one in the middle of the fairway while everyone else is in trouble. And one of them usually says "I hate it when some guy plays smart" At this point in my life I'll look at the yardage of the hole (on 4's and 5's) and get a plan based on getting to the 100 yard mark for my approach shot onto the green. This usually equates to many 4 woods off the tee. Chris
  12. All I can offer is when I hit it on the hosel it generally tells me that I'm stretching out so on the next hole I line up on the middle outside bump on the crown (Ping G410) and I connect in the middle again. I notice this is mostly dependent on weather, the warmer, the more out on the crown I have to line up, when it's colder or I'm getting tired, I go closer in on the crown. I find myself constantly adjusting based on the hole and temperature. Hope this helps a little. Chris
  13. Well, my 2 cents worth is this. From what I can find out gloves were used to help with gripping the club when the old leather grips were used and they got wet or at least damp. The popularity really took off when Arine started wearing one, he looked "cool" so everyone wanted to wear one and even more so when Jack started wearing one. As you noted Ben never gave in. As for me I tried for a while when I started back at the game around 2000, but shortly stopped wearing one. It just seemed to just get in the way. Haven't wore one since. I believe that most people wear them out of habit and marketing. With the advanced compounds in grips these days I, for one believe you don't need a glove. Which is why I don't wear one. Chris
  14. Thanks for the info. It answers all the questions I had about them. For me a fitter is at least 2 hours away. Not sure if I'll ever pursue Dollar Driver Club or not, but now I know how it works. Chris
